Chocolate Chip Strawberry Banana Bread
I think this may have been the best idea since sliced bread.
Wait, this is sliced bread.
My son really wanted a banana last night, so I told him to help himself. He did, but quickly dropped it after realizing it was a little, shall we say, ripe.
“Ew” for him, but perfect for me, because I’ve been wanting to make me some yummy banana bread!
I had a bunch of strawberries that had to be eaten so I decided to add them to the mix. And what goes better with strawberries and bananas than chocolate? That’s right. Nothing.

Spread a little butter or cream cheese on top and enjoy!
Strawberry Banana Bread
- 1 stick butter softened at room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup strawberries chopped
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
- Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. (I actually prefer to put the bananas and the milk and cinnamon in the blender. The result is a nice smooth banana taste throughout the bread).
- In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
- Fold in strawberries and chocolate chips.Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
